I was pleasantly surprised to see the debate concerning roadside memorials in the Glendale, Arizona newspaper recently.
The poll shows that 24% are for them and 75% are against them. I am part of the majority of this poll but never said anything because of not wanting to offend anyone.
It occurs to me that those who put them up on public property that all of us pay for through our taxes have not thought about offending anyone.
Someone made a comment about having to rent such spaces from the city since this property is public land...maybe this would solve the debate. If it were important enough for someone to pay the city and in turn other citizens to mark the place of their loved ones death then it might be tolerated and I guarantee you there would be fewer of them.
